Question on packs?
« on: May 23, 2010, 01:15 AM »
I am starting to build my jet pack, but was wondering if any members have done what I revfer to as Jango's short pack it is the one that does not have the rocket in the center. I was considering using a 1 1/2 inch diameter pvc pipe for side rockets and a 3 inch diameter pvc pipe for the main tank. I am 5 foot 9 inches tall and weigh about 300 lbs and was wondering if that proportion would be correct. I have had a hard time building my armor because of how I am built and while I am stalled on armor (waiting on someone to become available to help create vest) I have started my pack. Hope to have a prototype of side engines down loaded by tomorrow night.

If I'm not mistaken, we measured one of the arena packs at 3"center and 2" outer pipes

Sounds about right to me, but keep in mind Brian that you don't have to follow the measurements exactly. Mandos are known for customizing their kits, and I can easily see one having a jet pack specially made.

For the vest, if you don't mind me giving a suggestion; my vest is basically just a front panel and back panel sewn together at the shoulders, with adjustable velcro straps on each side. I made the pattern by taking an old t-shirt and cutting out the flanks.

I'd probably size down the 'jet' part on the bottom, but that's just personal preference. As it stands, looks pretty cool ;D.
